What You Should Know
The Flat Belly Diet for Men claims to target abdominal fat and help boost weight loss without exercise or giving up foods like steak and cheese hoagies and ice cream. The first problem with the diet is the claim of spot reduction. No diet or supplement can spot reduce. The body will lose weight from fat stores in various areas, not just the abdominals. If the dieter has excess fat on the legs, back and other sections weight loss will occur in those areas as well. Testimonials are available from the official Flat Belly Diet for Men website, but the dieter must purchase the plan to read the full testimonial. Prevention Magazine is the creator of the Flat Belly Diet and Flat Belly Diet for Men.
List of Ingredients
Diet plan for men who want to reduce abdominal fat.
The Flat Belly Diet for Men prescribed five meals and snacks per day. The dieter eats three main meals and two “power” snacks. The foods allowed on the plan are rich in monounsaturated fats, which are supposed to help focus weight loss on the abdominals. While monounsaturated fats are a healthy addition to any weight loss plan, they will not target weight loss on a specific area.
There is a 4-Day Flat Abs Kickstart included with the Flat Belly Diet for Men. The Kickstart is not described on the official website. Foods allowed on the plan are listed, but the dieter must purchase the book to gain access to the recipes for the dishes. The website offers very little information on the plan, aside from pictures of fantastic food. There is a selling pitch in every paragraph, telling the dieter they can lose weight and reduce abdominal fat eating foods not allowed on any other plan.
The lack of exercise support is concerning, because long-term weight loss requires exercise. Exercise also promotes bone growth and lean muscle. Researchers have linked regular exercise to increase weight loss, reduce stress and improve sleep. These facts are not listed on the Flat Belly Diet for Men website.
The book sells for $26.95 and is backed with a lifetime money-back guarantee. The guarantee states, clearly, that the reader can return the book after one year, five years or 10 years for a full refund.

- Food is promoted more than the dieter.
- Dieters cannot read testimonials unless they purchase the book.
The Flat Belly Diet for Men is a weight loss plan for men who want to shrink their midsection while eating great food and never exercising. This seems like a hoax, but the plan is from Prevention Magazine, so we are torn. Eating foods rich in monounsaturated fats is a great way to lose weight, but the diet will not exclusively shrink the abdominals.
